NAEB Convention Notes 

NAEBers have received the fi'rst of sev¬ 
eral mailings concerning the NAEB na¬ 
tional convention October 31-November 3 
at the Sheraton-Park Hotel, Washington. 
Another will be mailed later this month. 

Exhibit Coordinator Frank Masters has 
announced that all exhibit space has been 
sold; there are twice as many booths as 
there were the last time the convention was 
in Washington, in 1961. 

CALL FOR RESEARCH PAPERS 

Presley D. Holmes, chairman of the 
NAEB Research Committee, is requesting 
papers for presentation at the research ses¬ 
sion on November 1. The intent of the 
convention session is to represent each divi¬ 
sion of the NAEB—ETS, NER, Instruc¬ 
tion, and Individual Member—with at least 
r one paper from each. Send papers by Sep¬ 
tember 1 to: Dr. Presley Holmes, Ohio 
University, Athens, Ohio 45701. 

Lynn Kalnibach Dies 

R. Lynn Kalmbach, general manager of 
the South Carolina ETV network, died 
June 14 of a heart attack. He was 51 years 
old. 

He was nationally recognized as a leader 
in educational television, and was responsible 
for the development of the South Carolina 
ETV system. He was current chairman of 
the ETS CATV cofnmittee and had been 
preparing testimony for an FCC hearing 
on CATV. 

His interest in communications began 
early. When he was a school boy in Toledo, 
Ohio, he learned radio repairing, the Morse 
Code, and short-wave radio operation. As 
a master’s degree candidate at the Univer¬ 
sity of South Carolina in the mid-1940s, he 
often talked about using TV as a teaching 
tool. 

In 1958, while director of special services 
with the Columbia (S. C.) schools, he was 
appointed to membership in the original 
supervisory committee for the state experi¬ 
ment in education by CCTV, and in 1960, 
when the ETV network became a state 
agency, he was named general manager. 

1,840 Have Joined 

As we go to press, the NAEB Individual 
Member count is 1,840. Over 300 have 
joined in the last six months. 


NAEB Supports 
Higher Education Act 

In statements submitted to the Education 
Subcommittee of the Senate Committee on 
Labor and Public Welfare, a number of 
NAEBers endorsed the objectives of the 
bill, but requested that educational radio 
and TV be specifically included—as they 
have been in legislation for elementary and 
secondary education and for arts and hu¬ 
manities. 

Statements were submitted by NAEB 
staffers William G. Harley, Jerrold Sand¬ 
ler, and Chalmers H. Marquis, and by 
NER Board members E. G. Burrows, 
Frank W. Norwood, and Marjorie New¬ 
man, and by Frank M. Woolsey, Jr., chair¬ 
man of the post-graduate medicine depart¬ 
ment of Albany Medical College. 

Music Personnel to Meet 
In September 

Plans for the fourth annual music per¬ 
sonnel conference have been announced by 
Harry Welliver, chairman of the informal 
organization of music programing person¬ 
nel from educational radio stations of the 
country. 

Host station for the 1965 conference is 
WGUC-FM, the University of Cincinnati, 
where Joseph Sagmaster is director of 
broadcasting. George Brengel, program su¬ 
pervisor, is in charge of local arrangements 
and programing, assisted by Russell Walsh, 
of KUOM, who arranged the 1964 meeting 
on the campus of the University of Minne¬ 
sota. 

The two-day session will begin at 9:00 
a.m. Tuesday, September 28. Scheduled are 
sessions on programing of contemporary 
music, on recording techniques, and a panel 
session on station public relations—in addi¬ 
tion to sessions involving all conferees in 
discussion of everyday problems. Program 
planners promise “a rare and most unusual 
treat” for the entertainment feature the 
first night. 

Detailed programs and registration mate¬ 
rials will be mailed on or about September 
1. Before then, additional information may 
be obtained by writing Brengel at WGUC- 
FM. 


Testify on Copyright 

A panel consisting of William G. Harley, 
NAEB president, E. G. Burrows, vice chair¬ 
man of the NER board, and Eugene Aleini- 
koff, chairman of the ETS-NET Copyright 
Committee testified on June 4 before the 
House Subcommittee on Copyright to 
urge exemption from copyright restric¬ 
tions for educational radio and television. 
Also testifying for educational broadcasting 
were: Donald Quayle, Eastern Educational 
Network; Raymond Hurlbert, Alabama 
ETV Stations; and John Schwarzwalder, 
KTCA, Minneapolis-St. Paul. 

The proposed revision to the Copyright 
Law exempts educational TV and radio 
performances of non-dramatic or musical 
works or exhibitions of a work—but only 
if the program is primarily intended for 
classroom consumption or a similar. place 
‘‘normally devoted to instruction” and is “a 
regular part of the systematic instructional 
activities of a nonprofit educational insti¬ 
tution.” The spokesmen said that this nar¬ 
row concept would severely limit producers 
of educational programs. They also pointed 
out that the small staffs of educational 
stations cannot cope with the often long, 
arduous tasks of obtaining copyright clear¬ 
ances. 

All urged the adoption of a revision 
written by the Ad Hoc Committee on Copy¬ 
right Law, a committee representing some 
thirty national education organizations. 

Californians, Please Note 

The California State Board of Education 
has approved the NAEB for membership 
by schools and by county superintendents 
of schools for the years 1965-66, 1966-67, 
and 1967-68.

ITV Conference 
Deemed Success 

—by Bob Boston 

The third NAEB national instructional 
television conference attracted 175 persons 
to Miami Beach May 8-11. All sessions were 
at the Deauville Hotel except for one day 
which conferees spent at the University of 
Miami’s Learning and Instructional Re¬ 
sources Center. 

Keynoter E. L. Chalmers, Jr., dean of Flor¬ 
ida State University’s College of Arts and 
Sciences, stimulated the conferees with his 
address, “An Educator Challenges Instruc¬ 
tional Television.” After listing four key 
variables related to adult learning, he told 
the group that in all four, television is less 
advantageous than a live teacher in a class¬ 
room. The principal asset of TV in instruc¬ 
tion cited by Chalmers is financial economy. 

Commercial broadcasters whose programs 
appear on CBS and NBC presented samples 
of their work and explained how their pro¬ 
grams are produced. Jerry Schnur discussed 
the Chronicle series and Don Herbert con¬ 
cluded the conference with background in¬ 
formation about Meet Mr. Wizard. 

At the NAEB Instructional Division bus¬ 
iness meeting, Chairman Charles J. McIn¬ 


tyre reported that no executive director for 
the division had yet been selected and hired. 
He invited all members to tell him of can¬ 
didates who might be qualified to fill the 
new post. 

McIntyre also announced that he will ap¬ 
point a division committee to study the ap¬ 
plicability of 2500 me television. 

Date and place for the next ITV confer¬ 
ence was not announced, but will be forth¬ 
coming in a future Newsletter. 

ETV Stations Offer 
Short Courses for Adults 

KTCA-TV, Minneapolis-St. Paul, which 
first presented short courses for adults in 
open broadcast for tuition in the fall of 
1961, says that an increasing number of 
ETV stations have been using these cours¬ 
es, offering them on a tuition basis. 

South Carolina’s ETV center presented a 
course in supervision in the spring of 1964 
over its state network to 3500 paid enroll¬ 
ments. Later they offered “Efficient Read¬ 
ing” to 1000, “Basic Letter Writing” to 500, 
and “Psychological Aspects of Supervision” 
to 1500. 

The Educational Resources Foundation 
was incorporated by a committee from in¬ 
dustry with a full-time executive, Campbell 
Sanders, to develop and present short cours¬ 
es for industry. They have developed sev¬ 
eral short courses and are in the process of 
developing more. 

The Virginia chamber of commerce has 
presented KTCA’s “Modern Supervisory 
Practice” course to 3500 paid enrollments, 
using three commercial and three ETV sta¬ 
tions. Through WMEB-TV, Orono, Maine, 
the course reached 900 paid enrollments. 

KTCA’s “Conversational Spanish” was 
broadcast by Delta College with 300 en¬ 
rolled, WETA-TV, Washington, with 650 
enrolled, and KFME, Fargo, N. D., with 
75 enrolled. 

A new course, “Advanced Concepts and 
Techniques of Supervision” is currently be¬ 
ing offered over KTCA and WDSE, Du¬ 
luth, to 750 paid enrollments. 

KTCA has developed a new short course 
in conversational German for travelers, 
which is available for use elsewhere.

eral budget for the Association of $135,000 
not including division or project funds. It 


also voted to hold the spring meeting of the

is entitled “The Tin Whistle.” Burdick, 
now general manager of Boston Broadcast¬ 
ers, Inc., Boston, was general manager of 
WHYY, Philadelphia until January, 1964, 
when he left to accept the Boston post. 

The prize-winning scripts will be pro¬ 
duced at WQED and the six writers will 
each receive $1,000. The station received 
over 1600 letters of inquiry when the con¬ 
test was announced, and 615 scripts were 
entered. 

► At its May 25 public meeting, the board 
of education, Newark, N. J., reversed an 
earlier decision to eliminate funds for the 
operation of WBGO from the 1965-66 bud¬ 
get. The money has been restored. 

^ The Student Government Association of 
the University of Massachusetts recently 
voted $1,000 to support WFCR. Station 
Manager A1 Hulsen said the gift will make 
it possible for WFCR to broadcast some of 
the outstanding musical programs to be re¬ 
corded at European festivals this summer. 


TV Teachers 
Visit Classrooms 

In what may be the only utilization 
of its kind in the country today, 
the Great Neck (Long Island) 
school system sends its TV teachers 
out of the studio to visit classrooms 
daily. 

French has been taught to all 
5th and 6th grades via television 
since October, 1962. The two TV 
French teachers leave the studio 
after the completion of the tele¬ 
cast each day. They visit in person 
all of the 5th and 6th grade class¬ 
es once a week in a 20-minute live 
follow-up to the TV lessons. 


Mrs. Lilian Lazar visits some 
schools and Mrs. Juliann Grand- 
champ visits the rest. So that they 
are equipped to handle the live 
follow-up in both grades in their 
respective schools, the teachers 
switch about once a month in their 
instruction by television, i.e., the 
one who has been teaching 5th 
graders changes to teaching 6th 
graders and vice versa. 

Currently this system is being 
evaluated to determine whether a 
television French teacher should 
only teach one grade level through¬ 
out the year and visit only those 
classes which receive her lessons. 

In the photos, above, Mrs. Lilian 
Lazar teaches the lesson from the 
studio at South Junior School. Be¬ 
low, the 5th grade class of Eugene 
Hanson at Lakeville School receives 
the telecast.

y This summer Harvard University is in¬ 
stalling a special $100,000 network of co¬ 
axial cables and amplifiers to provide multi¬ 
channel distribution throughout the univer¬ 
sity of computer information, TV signals, 
and other electronic data. Making use of 
technical facilities in the WGBH-TV 
studios, the system will eventually link li¬ 
braries, laboratories, and classrooms of the 
university for prompt interchange of infor¬ 
mation and demonstrations. 
y The local Kiwanis Clubs recently pre¬ 
sented $3,588 to KRMA-TV, Denver, as a

foot antenna tower atop a 612-foot build¬ 
ing to give WTTW and WXXW trouble- 
free reception over a 60-mile radius around 
Chicago. This is reported as the first time 
that a UHF and VHF helical antenna have 
been united in a single tower, transmitting 
two TV broadcast signals from a single 
point. 

The Chicago ETV Association also re¬ 
cently accepted its 37th member, the first 
to be admitted in several years: Barat Col¬ 
lege of the Sacred Heart.

INSTRUCTION 

y The Tri-State Instructional Broadcast¬ 
ing Council has announced that it was serv¬ 
ing about 400,000 elementary and second¬ 
ary students in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, 
and Delaware at the end of the school year. 
y FM educational programs reached an 
estimated 300,000 students in elementary 
grades of 185 school systems in New York 
last year, according to the Empire State 
FM School of the Air. The school offered 
fourteen different programs weekly through 
a network of 14 FM radio stations. 
y With a recent program including a per¬ 
formance by the 26th Air Division Band, 
Miss Katherine Turnbull completed her 
sixth year of Understanding Music. Stu¬ 
dents throughout the Schenectady, N. Y., 
area view the programs, for which WMHT 
provides preparatory and follow-up mate¬ 
rial for teachers. 

PROGRAM'S 

y For its series Profile: Traffic Safety 
WHA-TV, University of Wisconsin, has 
won the Alfred P. Sloan Award, a citation 
for distinguished service to safety present¬ 
ed by the National Safety Council. Lee D. 
O’Brien produced the programs, which were

ards. The program used films, slides, and 


pictures to take a close look at the three 
E’s of traffic safety—Education, Engineer¬ 
ing, and Enforcement. 

y “Civil and Criminal Commitment: Medi¬ 
cine and the Law” is the name of a one- 
hour report produced by WGBH-FM, Bos¬

mitment may infringe on civil liberty. 
y KOAP-TV, Portland, Oregon, is mak¬ 
ing a TV documentary about a day in the 
life of a state legislator.

y WNED-TV, Buffalo, recently present¬ 
ed an hour special, “Conversation: Alco¬ 
holism.” Three panelists discussed the dif¬

vice-president of the National Council on 
Alcoholism and the director of the commu¬ 
nity health department of the American
